splinter - python tool for testing web applications

splinter is an open source tool for testing web applications using Python. It lets you automate browser actions, such as visiting URLs and interacting with their items.

Sample code

from splinter import Browser

browser = Browser()
browser.fill('q', 'splinter - python acceptance testing for web applications')

if browser.is_text_present(''):
    print("Yes, the official website was found!")
    print("No, it wasn't found... We need to improve our SEO techniques")


Note: if you don’t provide any driver argument to the Browser function, firefox will be used (Browser function documentation).
